With the boat coming out soon, I'm thinking of projects for the winter. I was at the boat last night and saw a transient Meridian with cleats located on the back edge of the swim platform. This would be a very convenient way to tie up my boat at the dock using the criss cross method. I have my grill mounted on my swim platform and am walking back there a lot. Doing my spider dance over the dock lines holding a tray of burgers is getting old. (especially after a few adult beverages)
So my question is has anyone added cleats to the back of their swim platform? Obviously I would need to use some kind of backing plate. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
